A woman has been jailed for making "baseless" hate comments online against K-pop diva Shim Eun-jin.
Seoul Western District Court sentenced the woman to five months' jail on Wednesday, saying she had tarnished the singer's reputation by making "baseless" and "defamatory" comments on websites.
The court also ordered the woman to do 80 hours of a mental treatment program and barred her from working at a welfare facility for children, minors and the disabled for three years.
In a separate case, the woman was accused in July of spreading defamatory rumors against two other celebrities.
She is a member of the first generation girl group Baby V.O.X
